Craft & Tell

I have been a busy crafting gal. Please read the bottom because I need your help!! These are the curtains I’ve been working on for my mother and father-in-laws room. They were thrilled so I’m happy. I have new, sturdier curtain rods we’ll need to install with a center support and proper brackets (instead of the bold that is holding the current rod up). I used black-out lining too so it should make the room pretty AND dark. Nothing like light coming in when you are trying to catch some zzzzz’s. I also finished the chair covers I’ve been mulling

Craft & Tell

I’ve been busy creating this week. I want to share these creations with the following … Sew & Tell Fridays with amylouwho, Get Inspired! with So Dang Cute, and Super Crafty Saturdays with One Crafty Mommy. Go check them out to see what others have created this week, too (but not after reading my creations, of course).

Hemming Curtains

I have had these curtains hanging in my bedroom for a year now I think. It’s time to hem them and finish them off. I have 6 panels of navy blue curtains (2 on a small side window x2 windows and 4 on the main window). I want to have the main window have 2 larger panels and longer hem while the 2 side windows will require shorter hem and I am currently debating keeping the 2 panels or making them 1 as well. I’ll look up cute ideas after the main one is done and the hem is complete.
